BETA PHOTO: Ritter Sport ... on West side of Tootsie Pop Tower

Description 

Up the crack, then finish up north side of fin onto top of the Tower.
Some thoughtful moves (? like "alpine" style ?) which are unlike most at Alabama Hills.

Warning: Rock is still breakable and loose, so belayer should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location 

The Left-most crack on the West face. About two feet left from a thinner crack.

Protection 

Could set up anchor for Top-Rope with a static rope or long slings through a hole near west end of one of the fins on top of the Tower.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
